Stayed for two nights. We were a group of three couples with one dog. I can't comment on check in as not all of us went to the reception desk. Dinner first night was various meals which we all enjoyed. Breakfast next morning was lovely although potato scone was a bit hard. Couple from London said they expected to pay double for the drinks in the bar. Rooms were fresh and clean and with the option of servicing by a card hung on the door, bathroom was modern with good shower. I'm not sure what some people expect. Corridors are narrow but that is due to the age of building. I certainly would return

Stayed here in July 2021, using it as a base for Skye. The only good decision we made with regards to our stay here was to only stay for one night. Please don’t make the same mistake that myself and my girlfriend did. This hotel is only highly rated within Kyle of Lochalsh as it is one of only two or three currently open in the area. Save some money (it’s very expensive for what it is) and find an AirBnB 10 miles/15 mins down the road in Kyleakin. The entire hotel is the most the dated I have ever visited with narrow, dingy corridors, battered old doors that don’t feel secure and dark, small rooms. The pictures on sites like Booking are very misleading - we had a double room that was tiny, uncomfortable and again, extremely dated. One of the worst things about this place was the unfaltering racket that passed through the room every time someone else in the hotel moved. Doors slamming, music, TVs, cleaners, floorboards and all manner of comings and goings can be heard at all times - not what you want when in this part of the world you’re spending a lot of time driving and need a good night’s sleep. The restaurant in this hotel is diabolical but as with the rest of the hotel, it can afford to be so as there is little choice in the area after about 5pm. The menu is very basic and expensive (prices definitely more than what I’d expect to pay for the same items even in London) but it would be perfectly acceptable if well executed. The burger I received was not as described on the menu at all, it was not steak, was not in a brioche bun and did not arrive with a side salad (a chopped pepper is not a side salad). My girlfriend ordered the macaroni cheese which truly was the worst thing I have ever seen served in a restaurant (picture attached). Drowning in oil, completely tasteless and again, with a side salad consisting of literally one lettuce leaf and chopped peppers it was simply unacceptable. To make it even better, upon receiving our food, the gentleman on the table next to us made staff aware that he had found what appeared to be a large piece of plastic or styrofoam in his meat pie. The staff completely ignored this and reverted to what they had been doing all evening - standing at the side of the galley-style dining room chatting about their plans whilst staring down the customers. I think the staff in the restaurant especially have basically been told to not engage in complaints at all or provide any level of service. We did return to the restaurant in the morning for breakfast, more than anything to see if it could be even worse than previously and I’d say that it was about on par - pancakes with strawberry ice cream sauce that was advertised as maple and a cooked breakfast with one burnt sausage, some baked beans that were so old they had a film on them and bacon and mushrooms. All of this came out of the kitchen alarmingly quickly. This hotel really is one of the worst places that I’ve ever stayed. My girlfriend and I paid £145 for the night including breakfast (dinner was a shock at just over £30 for total rubbish) and I’ve never felt so ripped off in my life. It is clear that they’re getting away with murder here in terms of quality and service because there’s pretty much no other option within about 5-10miles but also clear that they’re charging customers the maximum possible whilst reinvesting absolutely nothing back into the hotel. I don’t understand how a half decent company doesn’t invest in a hotel in the area; Lochalsh Hotel in a great location, currently closed and dilapidated would be a prime opportunity for example and would put scammers like this out of business.

Worst hotel experience I've ever had. The room was cramped, incredibly dated, and not particularly clean. We weren't even given mugs to make ourselves a hot drink, but two disposable to-go cups. The bed was uncomfortable and right next to the door, and there was no air conditioning. What a poor night's sleep. The hotel itself was so poorly soundproofed, every time someone else on the corridor walked past the room, opened or closed a door, had a shower or even moved, I woke up. You can hear EVERYTHING. The bathroom was cramped and just like a shower you get in a static caravan. In fact I refused to shower because the shower itself was so small I couldn't have turned around in there, and it wasn't even particularly clean. The so called restaurant was a room with no atmosphere with a few tables all very close to each other, no chance of social distancing in there. Next to me a gentleman picked out a foreign object from his pie and asked what it was, the dinner staff avoided answering. I opted for the macaroni cheese and was presented with a bowl of grease (I'm fairly sure it was a ready meal or tin, microwaved) some chips, and a small side salad consisting mainly of onion. My boyfriend ordered a burger, the menu said it came with a brioche bun but the bun was a cheap floury bap. The dinner staff stood 5 feet away from us talking about their tattoos, weekends and upcoming birthday parties while we ate which was off-putting and very distracting. Two meals (one of which was inedible) and two cans of drink came to £30! Breakfast was equally bad, food was very cheap. For £145/night I really expected more. I was given a dirty mug for my tea and had to specifically request a clean one. I opted for the pancakes, they told me they had maple syrup but they gave me what was defo not maple syrup - it tasted like strawberry ice cream sauce! By this point I was ready to leave and wanted to get the hell out of there so I didn't see any point in complaining. What I would say is that the polite and helpful young man who was working in the restaurant on evening of 8th / morning of 9th July 21 is clearly the hardest working member of staff. He was run off his feet while his colleagues stood around chatting. He is an asset to the hotel. I see this is one of two hotels in Kyle, so it can afford to be substandard. I appreciate that with this hotel you're paying for the location, but this is simply not worth it.

We stayed here 2 nights. Room was clean but very crampt. It wasn't serviced after first night. Sound proofing non-existent. Staff generally disinterested. The only positive was a decent bar. Breakfast was passable. Didn't fancy eating dinner here. I won't be back

We stayed in this hotel for one night on our trip through the Highlands and was disappointing in all respects The staff were tolerant rather than welcoming The rooms, whilst clean, were tired and uninspiring The restaurant was, frankly poor, serving little more than pub bar food In summary a hotel that might be best avoided until a major overhaul has been carried out
